Touring the country in support of Lime Cordiale, Pacific Avenue, Boy & Bear, The Terrys, and more, the Sydney band will once again head out on a national tour.

Racking up some 10 million streams worldwide, going back-to-back in consecutive Hottest 100 countdowns and drawn praise from the likes of even the most unlikely of fans in Avatar’s Sam Worthington, Sydney school friends The Rions are on the rise. Catch them when they head to Melbourne for a show at The Evelyn Hotel on May 27.

To celebrate the release, the band are heading back on tour this May stopping off in  Meanjin/Brisbane’s The Brightside, Tarndanya/Adelaide’s Jive, Boorloo/Perth’s Amplifier, Naarm/Melbourne’s The Evelyn Hotel and Eora/Sydney’s The Lansdowne Hotel.

Scary Movies arrives this month, with the 19-year-old band set out to make a song that conveys the fun side of falling in love. They share, “Too often stories about love are written from the perspective of the hardships that come along with a relationship, or the heartbreaks a lot of people can relate to, but an aspect that isn’t touched on enough is how fun falling in love can be and how happy finding your person can make you.”

Even with its childlike title, Scary Movies marks a distinct leap past the growing pains of their formative high-schooling years when we first met them, and into the maturity and depth of their contemporaries. Fronted by vocalist Noah Blockley who sits at the cross-section of Alex Turner, Sam Hale, or Ezra Koenig in his cheeky yet assured confidence that any mum could fast become a fan of, the band takes a collective step towards the band, and men, they want to be.

Catch them when they head to The Evelyn on May 27. Tickets on sale now, grab them by heading here.
